Big, great interview with Marat.. Only in Russian though..
It sounds like his injury is quite bad.. He hopes to start jogging in few weeks, practicing a little bit in December.. He realises that he won't be fully ready by AO.
His knee injury is chronic. It won't go away for good.
Sounds he does not have a gf right now..
He speaks in a very warm manner about Yeltsin, Kafelnikov, Kournikova, Sampras, Agassi, Federer, says he has great realtionships with Roger and Lleyton.. He says that he know them and Roddick from childhood, that they changed , like Roger became closer to a typical Swiss character, but it is only Roddick who changed to worse.. He doesn't talk to Roddick after some incident they had during Athens Olympics. He didn't elaborate..
He liked Sydney Olympics very much. Athens Olympics were awful in every way, organization, first of all..
Loves RG, dislikes Wimbledon, especially the way they treat players. Says grass is not a problem..
He is friends with Roger.. He says once he promised one of his friends a racquet, but realised that he had no racquets with him. He asked Roger for a racquet for the guy and Roger had no problem.
Very enjoyable read..
